The Best Ever Lasagna Soup Recipe (You'll Want to Eat This for Days)!

Here's a tip: Make sure to serve in large bowls (believe me, you'll want as much as you can shovel in)! Do I need to say anything else? This literally tastes like lasagna in a bowl. It is my husband's favorite and I know it will quickly become one of yours!

You’ll need:

  • olive oil
  • 4-5 links sweet turkey sausage (if you prefer, use a spicier variety)
  • 1 1/2 onions, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 42 ounces diced tomatoes (28-ounce can and 14-ounce can)
  • 32 ounces low-sodium chicken broth
  • salt
  • crushed red pepper
  • 1 box lasagna noodles (feel free to use gluten-free or whole-wheat noodles, whatever floats your boat)
  • 1/2 cup basil, chopped
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese, grated, for garnish
  • parsley, chopped, for garnish

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Using a large Dutch oven, cook sausage, onion and garlic over medium-high heat. Cook until the sausage is crumbled and browned, and the onion becomes translucent, approximately 10-12 minutes.
  2. Add chicken stock, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Season with salt and crushed red pepper (don't overdo the pepper unless you're a big fan of spicy lasagna!). Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer. Depending on how much time you have, I'll allow a soup like this to simmer on the stove for hours over very low heat. Feel free to do the same – the soup will recognize the love! Just don't forget to stir every once in a while.
  3. About 15 minutes before you're ready to eat, bring the soup back up to a boil and add the noodles to the pot. Cook until al dente (this usually takes a little bit longer than the package instructions say since we're not using a pot of boiling water). When noodles are done, add mozzarella and basil.

Serve in large bowls (believe me, you'll want as much as you can shovel in). Top with Parmesan and parsley.

I was thinking the same thing, Kelli Schulte - between Donna John and Erica Kane, soup's on all fall!! :-)

Well you were right Erica Kane! This was a big hit and my hubby ate three bowls! I'm vegetarian so I made it without the sausage and I used veggie broth. It was delicious!!! Thank you!!
